Painful Realities of life in Africa

This is a picture of a Widows seminar at a friend and partners church is Harrare, Zimabwe. Over 400 widows responded to the seminar. The picture tells of the devastation of AIDS, poverty, poor governance, etc. Imagining the pain of losing loved ones, caring for orphans, and more. Praying for relief, comfort, hope through the Gospel, laborers for their good.

Here’s a statement from the pastor:

The poverty gripping our country could be seen with all its viciousness on the faces of many of these women some of who are having to look after many children with no visible form of support. Some are also maintaining children of relatives who would have died from the AIDS pandemic. It was such a moving sight seeing these ladies receiving the word of God for spiritual empowerment as well as some clothing donations soap and lotions.

Let me know if you’d like to help meet needs in Zimbabwe.
